Want Older Posts - or a Different Topic?

Subscribe for automatic delivery of these updates using RSS or Twitter using the tag VashonBPrepared - no 'e' to keep within the 15 character limit. These should automatically show up on our Facebook page too - but that's currently only works intermittently.

Other established VashonBePrepared volunteers can easily blog - contact der Tech Team to get set up.
